She ain’t the belle of the ball anymore She’s not the picture hanging on the wall behind every dorm door Miss Best Beauty is no longer the fave social media queen That short-temper smile don’t enamel contrite gleam supreme The autumn reign was semester short as a mid-summer moonbeam She’s not the hookah heartthrob of every palpitating Y eye testosterone dream On the cute campus dance floor, she curvy ain’t the belle of the homecoming ball anymore Hash tag splash some ugly meme paint This picture ain’t pretty lipstick quaint Give a kiss of death to the hip flirtatious pledge darling Professed Valkyrie of TA many e-z Y conquest Peer voted Super Hottie Best, this belle had a novocaine, nosedive ring Got a bosom pain degree, false vows in the pleasure chest Silver tongue hourglass-shape laid: Tainted palette promises on a circular chime Her pulse fade is a wrinkled tick-tock portrait To no acne avail, pouty pigment don’t age pageant well Pretty poor fall from grace was her diva dropout farewell 11-01-21
